Duluth Severe Flooding

Severe rains have wrecked havoc on the scenic town of Duluth, reports the Star Tribune.
Heavy rains have been falling on Duluth and surrounding areas since Tuesday, the Star Tribune said. Some areas have gotten as much as 9 inches of rain.
Fortunately, there have been no reports of injuries but roads and private properties have taken the largest beating.
The Duluth Tribune reports an 8-year-old boy survived being swept away by the river-like current.
Governor Mark Dayton is due to visit the city in order to assess the damage brought on by the flooding, reports the Duluth Tribune.
Not only are homes and roads damaged but the Lake Superior Zoo was also hit pretty hard by the ongoing rain. Several animals drowned in the flooding and others were able to escape from their exhibits, the Duluth Tribune reports.
